Photography Assignment: Place

Guidelines: Make a collage out of 6 photos that explore the idea of a "place". You can think of place in the sense of geography, buildings, space or even state of being. Put an emphasis on developing a creative style or approach to the place.

Tips: Investigate photography styles, from fine art to documentary.

Media: Any type of camera you wish to use is welcome. Think about how the type of photography you are using can be incorporated into the overall work of art. For example, if you are exploring a Victorian house, think about using film instead of digital. If you are exploring somewhere grungy or dirty, think about using a disposable camera. The collage can be digital or real. If you are working with physical prints, think about incorporating an interesting frame or framing method.

As always, be creative! & remember to link me to your works :)

Reminder: Examples

Just a reminder, if you finish any of the projects, remember to send me a link so that I can post your beautiful work for everyone else to see. There are no deadlines for any assignments so don't feel like you can't work on an older piece just because we've moved on to something new. This could be a valuable resource for some critique to help improve, or just a chance to show off your skills :)

Happy Art-ing

Metaphor & Landscape: Example

My metaphor is "Love is War" "Plenty of fish in the Sea" & "Pursuing your Dreamboat"
The sea is a collage of text from peoples' profiles on the website,

This is a WIP still. The bottle cap for example is just because I couldn't render drawing one yet :P
